what will you do if kde reshedule?
If KDE reschedules, then 4.2 + some 'back ported' features sounds good to me; with 3.5.10 as an option like in 11.1. KDE has been at a difficult point in the software life cycle, whist I actually enjoyed basic use of 11.1's KDE4, I suspect that KDE 3.5.10 will remain a popular choice. The 4.2 release has been getting better reviews, and I noticed OpenSUSE had included some of the 'new' features in 4.1.3. 4.3 is going to be the crunch release for me, it either makes it by then, or breaks for me (XFCE or LXDE seem like the most promising replacements). So I hope it makes sense, remains fast, becomes very solid and avoids emasculation at hands of "Usability Experts".
there will *always* be a *breaking new* great application needing to wait some more weeks...
Yes, whilst the Build service and 1 Click install do really change the landscape, from the old days of waiting on box sets.
However OpenSUSE needs to maintain interest, and not everyone has a fast net connection; so something to get reviewed, appear on Magazine covers, for cheap disk emporiums to send out, and to put in the retail box set makes sense.
May be Build service labels like "X::Stable", "X::Latest" could be leveraged in the post-install process, presenting a selection of unstable, latest & greatest software for those with decent net connections and tolerance for frequent updates?
